Subject: Mentour request for volunteering

Hi Madeleine,

I hope you are doing well. My name is M and I am currently a student. I signed 
up to be a volunteer for bookshare a while back but haven't had a chance to 
work on any projects. The process of scanning/proofreading for bookshare is 
really confusing to me and I don't really have anyone to guide me through it. I 
heard that bookshare was starting the mentour program and was wondering if I 
could be matched with someone that could show me the ropes a little. I am 
totally blind and use jaws and a braille display to access my books, so 
preferably, I would like to get someone who has the same experience in this 
area. Thanks so much for your help and I hope to hear from you soon; I'm really 
excited to start helping this great community.

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams 
with open eyes, to make them possible." T. E. Lawrence
